The team at Frontier haven't been resting on their laurels since the release of the Australian animal pack for Planet Zoo. The team is already back with a new update to the popular zoo management game. Introducing Animal Talks!
In the real world, Animal Talks are when zookeepers give presentations about the various animals they have on exhibit. This provides interesting insights into the lives of the animals and shed light on some of the conservation efforts the zoo makes for them. The upcoming feature to Planet Zoo will work the same way.
Players will be able to set up a designated area (referred to as an Animal Talk Point) on the map. They'll have to be mindful of the location, though. It has to be next to a habitat barrier to work correctly. And there needs to be enough space to accommodate all the zoo visitors that will inevitably gather around when talks begin. Once established, the player can hire a new type of staff, known as the Educator, to host Animal Talk sessions at these points. Some Educators will even encourage the animals to come join in the presentation by throwing food over the barrier.
To accommodate this new system, a new information panel will be added. Here you can select Talk Points and set the animal species to talk about, assign educators, designate work zones, and more.
Successfully completed Animal Talks will result in happier patrons, which in turn will yield more donations for your zoo. The more skilled the educator, the better the donation.
Animal Talks will be a free update to Planet Zoo, available in just a few weeks. Planet Zoo is available now on PC for $45.
